International Recruitment–How to Approach This Big Issue

by Mariane Davids

The popularity of international recruitment is increasing as technology develops, but recruiters face lots of issues on a daily basis. A critical question is how to overcome all possible barriers? If you have wondered about this, we’ve found some solutions!

We have gotten so used to the internet and all its benefits that we can hardly imagine a single day without it. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the modern business world. Modern companies have already accepted all the available digital help, which has allowed people from different cities, countries, and even continents to apply for jobs within a few clicks.

The simplicity of communication in real time and fast data sharing enabled cloud technology offers has allowed people to work online for a company from the other side of the Earth. With these advancements, the trend of remote and international recruitment quickly conquered the world, but with all the benefits came some potential issues as well.

With that in mind, we prepared a few tips to help you overcome the common problems related to international recruitment.

Remote Work and Logistics

Since remote work was almost impossible only a decade ago, people are still scared to enter the modern world and entirely change their work habits. Remote work provides people with the opportunity to work from home for some of the largest companies worldwide while wearing their favorite pajamas at the same time.

Modern solutions have fixed all the issues related to remote work, as the latest tools have provided companies with unlimited online communication, the ability to participate in conferences and meetings across the globe in real time using a robotic camera system, fast file and data sharing, screen sharing, threading, and much more.

Using only one platform, employees can sometimes get the answers in real time and work even more efficiently than when sharing the same office with colleagues. Using the latest technology, they can even dedicate themselves to more creative remote work because physical absence isn’t a problem anymore.

Thanks to modern technology and automation tools, employees can work remotely in manufacturing companies. In such cases, repetitive tasks are reserved for robots controlled by skilled professionals, making robots the employees’ hands and eyes.

An employee doesn’t have to be on-site to use a robotic camera and arm, so remote work is possible even in manufacturing companies. The precision of the robots means fewer mistakes, fewer employees to complete a task, and having someone work remotely means less time wasted on commuting and breaks.

All this can dramatically reduce costs in the manufacturing industry.

Language Barriers

Overcoming the difficulties related to physical was the first step, but the next issue relates to language barriers. To help us overcome any limits, developers have provided us with various online translation tools, such as Google Translate, Linguee, SDL Trados Studio, and many more.

It seems that the extent of language barrier issues depends on the type of job, but every business field requires advanced communication among team members.
